The aim of this study was to examine the relationship of Effort Reward Imbalance, Occupational Stress and Turnover Intentions among employees of SCD Darling Company Uganda Limited. A total of 120 workers who remained in their job filled in a self-administered questionnaire. ERI was measured by a 23-item questionnaire. Occupational Stress was measured by a 22-item questionnaire. Turnover Intentions was measured by a 6-item questionnaire and Pearson correlation analyses were performed. The results revealed that there is a significant relationship between Effort Reward Imbalance and Occupational Stress and Turnover Intentions. However, there was no relationship between Effort Reward Imbalance and Turnover Intentions. This implies that when employees are fairly rewarded, they are likely to experience good stress. Also occupational stress is likely to influence turnover intentions of employees. Organisations should therefore ensure appropriate reward systems in order to ensure employee retention.
